Should tahini be refrigerated after opening?

I just made a nice batch of baba ganouj and I am wondering whether I should put this jar of tahini back in the pantry, or not. TIA.

  1. Refrigerate! Sesame oil is very perishable and gets nasty-tasting easily.

    1. It's just like peanut butter and will get rancid if kept out for long periods of time.
